I'm looking at the Raven 8.7 with its Shimano MT610 crankset with 32 teeth. The bike comes equipped with Shimano SLX M7100, 12-speed cassette and Shimano Deore XT M8100, 12-speed rear derailleur. I would need a more favourable ratio for the climbs so I'm trying to make sure the original 32t chainring can be swapped with the 30t version. Here's the manufacturer's page (https://bike.shimano.com/en-EU/product/component/slx-m7100/FC-MT610.html).

How can I be sure I'll be able to swap the 32t chainring with a 30t one?

Yes, you can swap for a 30T chainring. The Shimano page (link you provided) states that the crank arm is compatible with a 30T ring, and they provide a link with a part number (Y0K430000) to the exact Shimano chainring that would replace your 32T.
